Consolidation Not Fragmentation, at Last!

Colin Wallis | Executive Director, Kantara Initiative

It’s hard to believe a month has gone by since the identerati converged on the Hynes Convention Center in Boston and emerged four days later as the ‘Identiversed’. I’m still emailing follow-ups, and receiving them too, as many folks took time out to celebrate the 4th of July the week following the event. These big […]

The State of the Authorization Union

David Brossard | VP Customer Relations, Axiomatics

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to talk at the European Identity Conference on a topic that is close to my heart: authorization.

Sometimes, Standards Aren’t Enough

George Fletcher | Identity Standards Architect, Oath

The Castaway Society: Identity for Inclusion Isn’t Charity

Bianca Lopes | Identity Strategist

When it comes to financial inclusion, the truth is that most people think about some Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program or full-on charity for developing countries. This is straight up wrong! Identity for Financial Inclusion (IFI) isn’t about charity—it’s about business. It’s been calculated that a 1% increase in inclusion would result in a 3.6% increase in […]

The Future of Authentication: Cloudy with a Chance of Compromised Credentials

Steve Tout | CEO, VeriClouds

We live in an era in which customers no longer need to ask whether their credentials or sensitive data have been involved in a data breach or not. We are all victims now, and forward-thinking security leaders are responsible for leading the inquiry, “How at-risk are my users and my organization?” Our digital landscape is […]
